i just got my new parts which im stoked about!
i got two animal lino g pegs, salt plus universal hubguard (7075-T6 alloy full cnc body with heat treated crmo hardware), and a merrit plastic front hubguard.
i went to the skatepark today to test them and they seem pretty used allready.
how long will the saltplus hubguard last? and the pegs? is the 7075-t6 alloy full cnc body good?
im so happy i made the decision to get pegs!

A plastic guard will crack before it wears out in my opinion , especially on the rear . I wouldn't ride a plastic back guard ever again . Front ones seem decent , like Merritt or Gsport . They protect the spokes , but plastic doesn't help with impacts to the hub itself as much as a metal one will . The front should be good if you aren't crazy , a bad smith but fuck it up after a couple months of use possibly .

A 7075 rear guard will be fine , mine are good and they're only 6061 so not as strong . Chromoly ones will always be the strongest but unless you're able to crack or break an alloy guard constantly you won't need one .

Ultimately any guard will help , you'll like different things .

Pegs don't wear out really

I had a salt guard and it is still going strong after 4 years of street abuse and concrete ledges. Too lazy to Google the pegs but if they are steel than they sold last again almost forever.

You should get at least two years out of those pegs even with heavy krusty street grinding. They are my favorite. Your salt hubguard should last a while but alloy guards do bend. Even my chromoly daily grind guard is deforming after a year of riding. It's ok though, pegs and hub guards are meant to be smashed and abused.

Rotate them every couple of sessions and they'll last a lot longer, especially those aluminum gaurds

Metal pegs will last you forever
Metal hubguards are the same way but I have cromo as opposed to your aluminum ones so I can't tell you 100%


Honestly? Who gives a shit. Its the fucking internet. I hate all of you equally.

Regardless if its metal or plastic parts if you rotate them they can last twice as long.
